“I had lost myself personally and assimilated to get to where I had gotten so much that I didn’t know who I was anymore…Everything around me made me angry — the way businesses were run, the way people were being treated, the lack of diversity, has always been a big issue to me.”
Listed by WWD as one of the most powerful women in business, Nigerian Born, Los Angeles-based Sharon Chuter (Sharon C) is a visionary, change agent, and rebel with an apparent cause. As a seasoned beauty industry executive, Sharon has had a career that has spanned multiple continents and has worked with multinational beauty and consumer brands including Revlon, L'Oréal, PepsiCo, GSK, and most recently, Benefit Cosmetics.
